Joey Kramer’s Aerosmith Permanent Vacation Tour Drum Set. Signed, Authenticated $11,995

This Tama 1987 Crestar drum set was custom made for Joey Kramer of Aerosmith for the bands 1987-1988 “Permanent Vacation” tour. According to Joe Hibbs, Tama artist relations manger at the time, the radical pink and black swirl finish was inspired by a guitar Kramer saw that belonged to Joe Satriani. Tama was not able to produce the finish so Hibbs had the shells sent to the Ibanez guitar factory where the custom swirl finish was applied. Note that the shells are painted both inside and outside. This is the only known drum set to have ever received this type of swirl paint finish.

Tama made two pink sets for the “Permanent Vacation” tour, this set and another in solid pink. The solid pink set, with a very similar bass drum graphic ended up being the set used for the tour. This pink and black swirl set was not used for the tour and remained in Kramer’s possession until about 2010 when he began an endorsement agreement with the Ludwig Drum Company. The drums were acquired directly from Kramer by Ludwig’s mid-west sales rep.
The set is in excellent shape. The photos depict their condition accurately. The set includes the following,
